Several thousand Muslims on Sunday gathered in the Central African Republic's capital Bangui to protest a disarmament operation conducted by French soldiers.

The demonstration, staged by supporters of former rebel group Seleka, marked the most significant show of hostility towards France since it deployed troops on December 5 to end the chaos that followed Seleka's coup in March.
